Trivia One of the members of The Sick F*cks ran into star Jack Palance years later in the streets of New York. He said to Palance that he was one of The Sick F*cks in the film and Palance replied 'we were all sick fucks in that movie'. See more »
Goofs When the escaped inmates climb into the white van in the parking lot of the strip mall, the van is parked head-on in front of a store.

They would have had to reverse the van first. See more »
